Having problems with your Dishwashers ?

Candy Dishwasher Power Trip Problem...........................

\015 Hi - I have a Candy Dishwasher model number CI 7100 - it is now about 4 years old & the fault that has recently appeared results in the mains supply tripping out at various points in the cycle. I strongly suspect that that the problem is related to a fault with the heating element as I am able to run the cold rinse (which obviously includes pumping water in & out of the machine) as many times as I wish without problems. I am resident in Spain currently and want to have something concrete to go on before I speak with the service centre here (the language barrier always makes things a little fraught anyway!!) as I would like to avoid any unnecessary additional expenditure - is it a straightforward job for one to replace the element oneself?Please advise.Many thanksAdam Bennett - adam@makingitwork.eu\015

Hi Adam,
\015\012
\015\012Those are tough questions, it depends on accessibility of the parts in question, and the tools you have available to you.
\015\012It’s worth remembering that 80% of d/washer faults are mechanical in nature (even the electrical ones). I know that sounds like a contradiction in terms, however I am referring to things like loose connections, broken wires worn parts etc.
\015\012First thing to do is have a good look and weigh the job up (English colloquialism) A bad Neutral connection to the heater element would give you these symptoms. An open circuit heater would likely do the same. Moisture in an inappropriate place could also give similar problems.
\015\012After gaining access to the business end of the element, check for corroded connectors. If all seems well, and you have access to a multimeter, set it to ohms and measure across the two heater terminals with the wires disconnected. If you get no reading, then the heater element is open circuit and requires replacing. If you do get a reading, and still think the element is suspect, you could try disconnecting both feeds to the heater (not the earth) taping them up with good quality electrical tape so as to isolate them, then try your dishwasher on a cycle where the water would normally be heated. If it doesn’t trip the RCBs then heater is suspect.
\015\012This is a good starting point, and will enable you to assess weather you feel comfortable tackling replacing it or not (assuming it is faulty). If you don’t feel comfortable, may I suggest that you purchase the element from a spares supplier yourself, there are many good suppliers on line. Then have a service engineer fit it. This prevents your friendly repair man charging you $90.00 for a $20.00 part.
\015\012Of course, it goes without saying, that all these tests should be carried out with the appliance disconnected from the mains supply.
\015\012
\015\012Good Hunting!

\015\012Regards……..Dave

Got a Indesit Di620 Dishwasher that trips RCD after power up & immediateley as you shut door.Fault is definately related to pressure switch, disconnected pipe to switch and then able to start cycle, without tripping, small amount of water out of pipe,but cycle only lasts for a few minutes, then stops. ( blowing into pressure switch trips rcd )How can i test switch, or is it a water level problem ??Any help would be good, thanks S.C

I just replaced the control panel (black plastic with buttons, not control circuitry). was running the diswasher and it seemed to be working fine, then stopped. water is standing in tub, I checked the float, I don't think the float is the problem.

Hello, my slimline, Hoover, HEDS 668, AAA class, dishwasher is playing up. During a wash cycle, my meter tripped. When I put the power back on, all the light were flashing and beeping.

Try a fan or light where the washer is plugged in. Suspect a bad power plug connection if the test works. The next suspect is a faulty microswitch connected with the door latch mechanism. You will likely need a test meter to track this down. Good luc ... LG 24 in. LD-12BW5 Free-standing Dishwasher
